Superb accommodations in a stately 1934 mansion house. Every guest quickly becomes a member of the family as owners Dave and Phil provide delicious breakfasts and relaxing wine and cheese delights each morning and evening. Hospitality and service are outstanding - Dave provided travel tips, recommendations and reservations at local restaurants, and even an audio tour of the adjacent Yorktown battlefield. A great place to get away, relax, and experience American history.

We spent the weekend in Yorktown to celebrate our son's graduation from Coast Guard A-School which is just down the street from the Hornsby House Inn. The owners, brothers David and Philip Bowditch, made us feel very welcome, providing us with historical information about the area and sharing stories of their childhood home. The breakfasts were bountiful with bacon, eggs, and cheese grits served on their grandmother's china. We also enjoyed afternoon wine and cheese, watching the Main Street "traffic" from the comfort of the front porch rocking chairs. David and Philip also provided us with good information about activities in the area as well as recommendations for lunches and dinners. All in all it was a wonderful weekend.

Just completed our third stay and continue to enjoy this venue as a great place to meet with friends and enjoy each other's company in any of the lovely common areas, i.e. the veranda overlooking the Yorktown Victory monument that overlooks the York River, the beautifully appointed dining room, living room and side porch room as well as the side screened porch. The "Inn Keepers--David and Phil" are wonderful hosts who grew up in the house and know all of its history. They are also helpful in introducing you to all that the Yorktown area offers, i.e., museums, sunset cruises, restaurants, etc. Yorktown has all the charm of Williamsburg and much less traffic.

My husband and I own a b&b in Richmond, VA, so we are extra particular about the b&bs we stay in when we travel. Phil and Dave and the Hornsby House offered a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back! The house and the history of the years it has been in their family is just wonderful and you feel like you're part of the family from the minute you enter! The rooms are lovely and well decorated and have all the comforts of home! We especially loved the cozy sun room where we met other guests for wine and cheese while Dave and Phil shared with us stories of the history of the family home...so special!! These two are so wonderfully hospitable and very entertaining! Breakfast was fabulous and another fun opportunity to hear more history and stories. We can't wait to bring the family back in the spring time and enjoy the lovely views from the front porch! Don't miss this wonderful find if your travels bring you to Yorktown!

Phil and I grew up in the what family and friends call the "Big House". Our Mom passed five years ago, having raised four sons in this lovely home. At a sitdown dining room breakfast, we cook a gormet breakfast from Mom's cookbook, "From the Kitchen at Hornsby House, and we talk with our guests. You'll love it.
